Premises Liability Vocabulary

Premises liability is a part of personal injury law. It deals with injuries sustained on another party’s property. A property owner is responsible for keeping their property safe for visitors. This includes warning people of potential hazards, such as wet floors, and maintaining the premises to ensure safety regulations are met. If a property owner fails to uphold their responsibilities, they may be held financially liable for their negligence.

Understanding Premise Liability

If you are considering filing a lawsuit, there are several legal terms you need to become familiar with, including the following:

  • Invitee – A person injured on a property who was welcomed onto the property. This includes visitors to both homes and businesses.
  • Licensee – Someone who has a license to enter private property and was subsequently injured. This may include such licensees as health inspectors.
  • Trespasser – A person that gets injured despite the fact they were not invited to the property. A trespasser may be entitled to compensation in certain circumstances.
